Teacher and Webmaster advice
From the teacher -
This study on Revelation is likely to be unlike any other you
- First, it was originally done in Microsoft PowerPoint. This
is a slide show, with notes. The notes contain the meat of the
matter. Because of that, you will find yourself using your
"back" button on the browser to get back here. You might want
to bookmark this site instead.
- Next, as unbelievable as it sounds, this study presents all
the major views of the Book of Revelation. It will probably
surprise you to find this, but there are other views besides Hal
- Even more unbelievable: this study does not trumpet one
over the others.
- Why? The author had the benefit of the library at Pacific
Christian College (now Hope International University) and its
superb collection of books on this subject. In that library are
books that argue fiercely for their particular view. So many
minds, so many differing points of view - they are simply
presented here for your use.
- Because of that approach, however, you will also note that
there are certain similarities in these views - when proper
methods of interpretation are applied.
If you are looking for your particular view, please don't bother
with this section. Also, please do not write the webmaster
about the content of this. It is not our intention to conduct
a debate; rather, to provide a resource to those who might
The first three lessons in this study were not in PowerPoint, but
were given to introduce the author and the concepts of prophecy.
From the webmaster -
One word of warning: the PowerPoint sections of
this series do not work well in Firefox. Sorry, but this is one for which
you will need Internet Explorer.
How does this work? Simple enough:
1. The presentations shown in the navigation
bar (starting with "Vision") are created by PowerPoint. The
style is so unique that only Internet Explorer, which has the code
for this, can display them properly. (Open standards, from
Microsoft). You can access them with Firefox, Safari, Netscape
and Chrome - but they display black screens (I've tried it.)
2. Since some of you will want to use the presentation
materials, we've provided some downloads for you. Each lesson
(starting with "Vision") has the following downloads available:
The PowerPoint presentation itself, in PowerPoint
2007 format (.pptx). Note:
Weirdly enough, Internet Explorer tries to open the PowerPoint
presentations in Open XML - which doesn't work. If you want to
use the PowerPoint presentations, open this page in Firefox, Safari
